Shibori Folding - no 4

Easy clamping today, just use those cling clips from IKEA or another store to clamp your fabric:

You can play with the fabric which part will be outside, resulting in a stronger result, by now, you now how I folded this ;-)>


  1. do you submerge the entire clamped piece into the dyes??
    i am still mot 100% wuith the process.

  2. @QuiltSwissy, yes indeed, just a bucket full of water and dyesolution plus soda-ash will do! Best to take hand-warm water as a starting point.

  3. Leuke streepjes, kleine moeite groot effect. groeten van liesbeth

  4. I forgot to mention that adding salt wil keep the dye moving in your solution which is quite important when dyeing in buckets.
